Chaves/Maciel stop foes

In the 12 round main event Saturday night, unbeaten WBO Latino Welterweight champion Diego Chaves (20-0, 16 KOs) of Argentina spectacularly stopped countryman Jorge Miranda (44-13, 16 KOs) in round 3 at the patinódromo del Club Atlético Vélez Sarsfield, in Buenos Aires, Argentina to retain his WBO latino title.

WBO Latino Jr. Mddleweight champion Javier Maciel (20-2, 13 KOs) of Argentina easily dispatched Néstor Faccio (15-4-2, 9 KOs) of Uruguay in less than one round in the co-feature. Maciel valiently dropped a competitive decision to current world champion Dmitry Pirog earlier this past March in Pirog’s native Russia. The event was promoted by Mario Margossian.
